Abstract
Objective: To assess the effectiveness of the single-mini incision technique in the management of carpal tunnel syndrome using visual analog scale (VAS) for pain assessment and Boston CTS Questionnaire (BCTSQ) in terms of clinical outcome.
Methodology: This prospective observational study was conducted at the Rajput General and Medicare hospital from January 2018 to January 2020. Patients >20 years with CTS were included after informed consent for single mini-incision procedures. Those with rheumatoid arthritis, mass lesion, cervical myelopathies, myopathies and other associated entrapment neuropathies were excluded. VAS was used to assess patient pain after one-month and three-month post-procedure. The outcome in terms of severity and functionality was evaluated by the BCTSQ and patients were graded.
Results: Out of 105 patients, 14 were (13.3%) males and 91 (86.9%) females with a mean age of 4712.9 years. The mean VAS was 8.060.73 before the procedure which improved to 3.431.1 four weeks and <3 three-months after the procedure. Three months after the procedure, none of the patients had severe symptoms or severe difficulty in performing their activities, showing good recovery.
Conclusion: Single mini-incision technique is effective in the surgical management of carpal tunnel syndrome. It promises early return of functionality and little to no post-procedure pain.

Key words: Carpal Tunnel Syndromes, compression neuropathy, mini incision release, visual analog scale, Boston Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Questionnaire
